These destinations are ideal for a break in winter, when they enjoy warm weather away from the scorching summer, and their relative proximity ensures that you won’t spend a whole day travelling. One of the biggest attractions of the region is undoubtedly the beautiful coastline that each destination enjoys, and there are plentiful activities offered at each resort that make the most of this fabulous natural environment.Activities include sailing, snorkelling and trips into the desert interior.
Equally impressive and worth exploring are the fascinating old forts that are scattered throughout Oman. Older children will especially be enthralled by the possibilities offered by the deserts, such as camel rides, jeep safaris and dune surfing. The cities and towns of the Middle East are intriguing and worth exploring, from Dubai’s glittering skyscrapers and exquisitely detailed mosques, to the enchanting traditional feel of Muscat. The friendliness of the people will charm you, and both in and outside of the resort you will find your family warmly welcomed. Excellent children’s facilities and activities are a prominent feature, combined with restful spaces and spas that allow adults the chance of a little peace and pampering. Steeped in history and mythology, these are vibrant countries with much to offer.
